A tired group of defenders react too late and poor goal keeping by Tim Weise lets in Jadson’s extra time goal. Shakhtar become the first Ukraine side to win the UEFA Cup. Congratulations to them.
It was an all Brazilian show as Luiz Adriano put Shakhtar up in the first half, again latching onto a pass after a defensive breakdown. Weise charged out half heartedly and then inexplicably flopped down while the chip was in the air. Naldo equalized through a straightforward free kick which Andrei Pyatov ended up parrying into his own goal. All the goal action took place in the first half. Regulation time ended with the teams deadlocked. ESPN’s matchcast here >>
